What We Think

This DW black nickel over brass snare drum is one of the essential sounds any drummer should have. The 1mm rolled brass shell makes for a great live or studio snare. Tuned high, this drum offers great articulation, sensitivity, and cut. The lower tunings offer a fat and wet sound without loss of responsiveness. Suitable for a variety of musical applications, it offers that sought-after "classic studio brass snare sound" for rock, jazz and beyond; offering brightness and cut with a decidedly metallic tonal characteristic.
